With the crowd on their collective feet, screaming at the top of their lungs, Green Mountain Grafters rallied to top Beantown Philosophers by the score of 10 to 9.

Green Mountain scored the decisive runs in a big 9th inning scoring 4 runners on 4 hits. The crucial at-bat was provided by Johnny Bench, who elicited a roar from the hometown fans when he smashed a two-run homer (his 5th of the season). Green Mountain out-hit Beantown for the game, 17 hits to 13.

The win went to Mariano Rivera(1-1) who allowed 1 run in 4 innings. The losing pitcher was Ray Narleski(0-2) in relief. He gave up 1 hit and no walks in 1/3 of an inning.

'We just wouldn't give up,' Bench said. 'Much of the credit goes to our fans - they were with us the whole way.'
